Pros

The greatest benefit that came from this software, for me, is the ability to conduct business, specifically, complete a payment transaction, no matter where you are located.
Square is an awesome piece of software to use. The retail side has great capabilities for sales, inventory, gift cards, rewards, and much much more.
Square is very simple to learn and use as an end user, and it has gain a lot of popularity recently, customers feel more and more comfortable with this system.

Pros

My experience is really good and I was using PayPal since 2020 and I love to used it I can use PayPal Donation which is really good for streamers and gamers.
In general my experience is positive on the other hand I think that it is very important to have a good customer service and be present in the Arab countries as well.
If you love PayPal then PayPal Here is going to be another favorite. It's easy to use and perfect for in-person selling.

Cons

If I am to complain about something I would complain about the percentage I am giving back to square but that it the cost of doing business.
The only thing that has ever been slightly frustrating is the traditional card reader being sensitive when swiping cards. Sometimes I'll have to try 3-4 times to get it to register.
I dislike that it fails sometimes and it is not accessible at many different vendors and restaurants.

Cons

Susceptible to scammers and fraudulent activities that use its brand to lend an air of credibility to their activities.
You have to be connected to an internet signal to use it. We've been in a spot where service is weak and the app lags or crashes.
So far, I've been blocked by paypal because there is a signal problem when logging in. This made me to create a new account, which of course had an effect on the work I was doing.

Integrates well into your website

Reviewed 5 years ago

Good service and better than paypal.

Pros

I use and still use paypal but they have way to many fees. Square doesn't have fees for the service I use outside the transaction charge. It integrates into your website for free! Paypal charges like $30 a month for that service or more.

Cons

I wish there was an option to pay for the service per month rather than a transaction charge. Let me explain...instead of paying 2.75% per transaction there could be an option to pay a monthly charge which would be less in the aggregate.

Love Love Square

Reviewed 5 years ago

Overall, I prefer square any day over stripe and PayPal payments.

Pros

Love live square. Love that it can be used for both in store and online payments. It sync with my quickbooks which saves me a whole lot of time. It gives detail daily reports which includes best seller of the day, number of sales, number of products sold and what type of product sold, taxes paid, types of payment the customers used, plus it syncs with my online store inventory. Square gives you all the detail info you never realized you need till you need it all in one place. So easy to use and tailored for retailers. Love the Apple Pay feature too.

Cons

My big con with square integration is it doesn’t sync well with bigcommerce. By that I mean, my online sales gets imported as a custom order so there is no itemized list of what the customers bought. Also with bigcommerce, there is no way for me to take Apple Pay or other digital wallet payments. Square does have digital wallet payment options with their square space shopping cart. Fingers crossed they will fix this custom import stuff soon.

Fair and decent. No complaints and a good alternative to PayPal.

Pros

Fees were low, set up was quick and customer service is fair. Overall a good merchant to use if not wanting to go through all the paperwork with regular merchants.

Cons

Price of the unit is a bit high but still fair. Security is a bit strict but I suppose that is good for protecting the community.

Comparison to Paypal

Reviewed 7 years ago
Pros

I have both a Square and a Paypal reader. I find myself always reaching for Paypal. Square is great, don't get me wrong, but I am more familiar with Paypal so I go with what I know. Square comes with a cute little reader for point of sale transactions. The app works. I've never experienced a glitch. There are many opportunities for customization of inventory as well.

Cons

I just find that the checkout process is a bit...cumbersome. It's just the layout. It's not awful, but I don't prefer it.

There is alot programs that work the same way like paypal or stripes. So, it is, mostly, preferance.

Great system I’ve used it as a business and a customer however not competitively priced

Reviewed 5 years ago

Overall I’m happy with square I use it and Venmo/PayPal because it’s free also PayPal has the tools for shipping built into their system so I can easily use that. Another plus for PayPa is that it has email functions.

Pros

I love that the square POS it’s simple to process purchases and sales. Very user friendly easy to input items sku number and names and addresses and create invoices and receipts to be emailed or texted to customers.

Cons

Not competitively priced the fees are not as low as other point of sales. They have built a great name and can charge higher prices.

A huge help when running estate sales

Reviewed 4 years ago

Square point of sale has been a great asset allowing us to take card payments not only in person when we run an estate sale but also over the phone for clients who wish to pay their invoices with a card versus a check. The option of a text or email receipt is also very helpful for those who want proof of purchase/payment when we don't have a printer onsite.

Pros

It allows us to take card payments for any amount using the app when a customer doesn't have cash instead of the risk of taking a check.

Cons

The processing fees are competitive with other services such as PayPal but still high and cut into our profits.

Excellent POS System

Reviewed 7 years ago

Fast and easy setup. Accurate customer contact information stored in the "cloud".

Pros

The best part of Square POS is the ability to retain customer records and export them to our database. Square is also less expensive than many of the other POS systems. It's easy to use, very intuitive and is worth the setup and integration. We use Square at Trade Shows and Conferences for in person point of sales. This is also the best due to the chip card and apple pay capabilities.

Cons

It can be expensive to refund money, as the fees are not returned, like they are with PayPal. So, it is important to know that you won't get a return ahead of time for the service or product you are selling. Otherwise, we will use PayPal

Square makes it easy it’s swipe your customers card then and there. Very easy to use.

Pros

The best thing about Square is that you can swipe your payments right there on the spot. No waiting for payment to come through later or for client to forget and need to be reminded. It happens at that moment.

Cons

It’s very similar to PayPal in transaction use. There’s nothing I don’t like. It’s just nice to have another payment method.

Perfect for Small Businesses

Reviewed 5 years ago

Since using Square for my small business, I have felt more professional and organized. I was using PayPal before this, and I just felt like my customers deserved better. Square gave me options that I did not have with PayPal and made my transaction process smooth and seamless.

Pros

I love that Square is so easy to use and set up. I run a small company where I sell customized products. Square is perfect because for my company because of the low fees, quick set-up and free initial square reader. In addition, the inventory control option is just so amazing and simple. I can add and control inventory (even add photos) from the app with ease. I can also create and edit prices while creating customer inventories. Square helps my small business feel professional.

Cons

There is nothing I do not like about Square. It is the most professional off all inexpensive point of sales and is perfect for a small business.

Square is a stellar POS system, living up to its reputation for user-friendliness and efficiency. With its sleek design and seamless functionality, it's a top choice for businesses seeking a reliable and easy-to-use POS.

Square is simply the ultimate payment processor.

Reviewed 2 years ago

We suffered one month with PayPal as our payment processor. At the time, nearly all payments were going through them, and PayPal decided to hold nearly all of our money earned for the month. They held it for 30 days. It could have destroyed our business. Our customers, who support our work, were furious to find out that their money was taken from them and was being held without explanation by PayPal, for 30 days. Fortunately, Square was there to provide superior service. We have never had that issue with Square. We tried PayPal again for a few months with one customer, and, after a several months of no problem, they held the money again! No explanation other than they just do that sometimes.

Pros

I love how easy it was to sign up for the service, and they provide some protection against chargebacks. And, they do not hold your money like PayPal.

Cons

Sometimes, the interface can be a little confusing, but it's not too bad.

Square>PayPal (for the most part)

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

For our purposes, we have a Cash.me (Square Cash) account and our own Square account as well for more formal things like invoicing advertising clients and the like. Setup is a breeze, so is putting in bank accounts. We love the instant deposit feature and like it even more that the threshold is cut in half from 50 to 25 for the instant deposit. The invoicing tool is actually quite simple to use, but with a full set of features for invoicing, down to granular detail.

Cons

Square integration into a website requires a third party backend to do so, something that PayPal does not require, making them easier to integrate into one's website without giving up info to a third party backend, which in itself can costs hundreds, if not thousand of dollars. Allowing webmasters to integrate and plug in directly into the Square payment backend like PayPal does would create more customers.

Square Point of Sale

Square is super easy, has lots of functionality

Reviewed 6 years ago

I have recommended Square to friends over PayPal or Etsy for POS systems. The % they take is reasonable, it's easy to use, and has plenty of options.

Pros

Lots of functionality, especially for adding options/add ons for items. Fast transactions. Secure sales with the chip reader. Super user friendly.

Cons

The only con would be that the chip reader doesn't come standard. Considering the shift in cards these days, I think that should be the default, not just the swiper.

Great experience

Reviewed 6 years ago

point of sale contact with customers

Pros

I have appreciated using Paypal as first an individual customer then as a business customer for many years. The Paypal Here app lets me interact with customers at the point of sale and meet both their needs as purchaser and my business needs as retailer.

Cons

I haven't compared in a bit but do believe the fees are just a bit more than a popular competitor? I would have to do some more research to make sure that is still the case.

The software is great, the hardware is less so

Reviewed 5 years ago

Great but could be better if the hardware worked well.

Pros

Easy to use point of sale option for my business.

Cons

I have had a lot of struggles with the hardware that scans the card and often have to manually enter. Not a big deal unless I am busy and customers have to wait.

Pros

I mean to be honest it’s as easy as Square. You can create lots of point-of-sale solutions for your business. Small or large. Whether you are a pop-up vendor or a brick and mortar. I’ll integrates into your PayPal business account, Easley connects to banking.

Cons

I mean, you have to take the time to set up your store and buttons, and you do have to pay a fee. But I mean that’s across the board same for all platforms.

PayPal Here device works

Reviewed 5 years ago

In our case, as a small nonprofit who has just occasional need for a point of service sale, PayPal Here is our best option.

Pros

Since our Nonprofit already uses PayPal extensively for donations, selecting the PayPal Here device and app was a no-brainer of choice for taking Point of Service donations and sales payments. As long has one has connectivity to the Internet one is ready to take payments with ease

Cons

I don't really have any cons. PP Here has always worked well as long as I could get a phone signal with my cell phone. Our sanctuary is remotely located and there are no cell towers close. One must rely on a WiFi connection in these cases. That has nothing to do with PayPal's quality, though.

Streamline Your Payments

Reviewed a year ago

The app is user-friendly and straightforward to navigate, making it easy for small business owners to manage their finances efficiently.

Pros

It offers a range of payment solutions for small businesses, point-of-sale systems, and invoicing tools, all of which can be easily managed through a single app.

Cons

The downside of PayPal Zettle is that it might not offer the same level of customer support as other payment processing solutions. While it does provide customer service, it may not always be as responsive or helpful as some users would like.
